Overview

The pace of change means that more and more inexperienced people are being asked to lead projects. The deadlines are often very close; the available resources are limited; and the stresses brought on by the pressure to succeed are intense.  The conflicting demands from the day job and the project may be impossible to reconcile.  Is it any surprise that 70% of projects fail to deliver in full, on time and within budget?

We've distilled the wisdom and experience of project managers into a simple six-step approach to leading a successful project.  We'll help you learn it effortlessly in our highly interactive two day course.  It's a practical approach that is easy to apply to any situation.
